Color relationships

A photograph cannot meet rinairs or Q7 if it misrepresents the relationship between various colors in the scene depicted.


• Various photographs may have a warmer overall cast and some may have a cooler overall cast depending on the lighting conditions (for example, warm sunset light vs. cool noontime light) and many photographs vary due to white-balance choices...

. . . but a photograph is always disqualified by rinairs and Q7 if it selectively renders part of the scene cooler or warmer than the rest of the scene in a way that was not present in the scene that was photographed.

• Any photograph that renders part of the scene in monochrome (black-and-white) and part of the scene in color is disqualified from TCQ by rinairs and Q7.

There are no exceptions to this disqualification.
